Never used the 360 Dashboard so I can't comment on if it looks the same, but I see people are comparing. Isn't that what business' do? use another idea and create something different/similar from it? Competition. Personally, I expected something similar to the PS VITA, since the PS3 used the XMB from the PSP.

Not at all fussed though, it's all about the games, *bleep* everything else.

oh god, STOP THIS MULTIMEDIA CRAP ALREADY!!! a games console plays games, if it can play DVD's or Blu-Ray movies fine, thats a hardware advantage and i find it useful.

what i dont want is to have a metric crap-ton of useless add-ons, which are usually forced upon us now, that i will never use. Internet? i have a f**king PC for that shit!

movies? i'll go and by the DVD/Blu-Ray. Music? my computer has iTunes. T.V. i have Satalite T.V. on demand.

just give me my GAME console back. please...

Then don't use them. No need to REMOVE features to appease a small niche of people. Some people don't have a computer with iTunes hooked up in their living room like you seem to do.

At the end of the day these features do not increase the price of the console merely the value it offers to customers. If you don't want these features then don't use them. It has already been said that everything in the PlayStation 4 is optional. If you don't want social media interfering in your games then turn it off as you can, if you don't want Netflix or Facebook or whatever else then uninstall them. These are not features you are forced to use so don't use them.

i know i dont HAVE to use them guys, its the fact most of the time, you cant remove them from the system, so it adds more stuff to boot time, clutters the menus and forgive me if im wrong but i thought i was buying a games console, not an advert machine.

and it DOES cost money to develop these apps that a majority of gamers wont use.

its even getting into the games themselves, i loaded up Battlefield 3 and lo and behold, an advert, in the game, leaching bandwidth un-necessarily, and over here in the U.K. our connections are very limited as it is...

Ok relating these screens to Windows 8 is pathetic honestly unlike M$ Sony keeps their UI very clean and straight forward. Microsoft tends to cluster fluck everything then add layers to it. This UI is not windows 8 and on top of that it is far from windows 8. And in all honestly this UI looks like the old PS3 UI with the icons being images of the game, apps, store etc now. I mean look at it same layout just with pictures, we have the tab/channel on the horizontal then the settings/info in the vertical all running together. Windows 8 are boxes that lead to more boxes then to boxes with ads, then to the unorganized crap of a program/application this goes for both Windows 8, and the Xbox 360 metro dashboard.

I am really liking the way the Ui is looking and I trust Sony enough to make it work.


EDIT: The UI for tablet and smart phones looks like the Sony equivalent to a typical tablet/smartphone app UI.

I think it's good that they've made a point in keeping plenty of stuff optional. I have a feeling I'm going to be disabling a lot of them as a result.
